Starting to recognise kanji

Hey so I’ve been doing wanikani for two months now (loving it) however I’ve realised that sometimes I just see kanji and recognise it the memo mics don’t even come to my mind anymore in fact I think I’m forgetting them…should I continue like this or should I see if I can remember each menomic?

The mnemonics are only tools to assist you until you learn the items properly. It’s expected that you eventually forget the mnemonics.

That’s a good thing! Think of the mnemonic as a hook that latches on to the kanji in the depths of your brain. Each time you use the mnemonic to remember, it pulls the kanji closer to your long-term memory, until eventually you don’t need the hook at all, you can just grab it on your own :slight_smile:
